If There’s No Tomorrow by Jennifer L. Armentrout – a review by Melissa

It's pretty much a given, at this point, that when Jennifer L. Armentrout releases a book, I'll love it. With the exception of the thrillers, murder and gore - they are not my cup of tea. Contemporary young adult is not usually my favourite genre, but in her book The Problem with Forever, I really enjoyed… Continue reading If There’s No Tomorrow by Jennifer L.

Saving Mr Banks directed by John Lee Hancock – a review by Melissa

Mary Poppins is my favourite childhood character. For a few years, I wanted to be her when I grew up. After that, I just wanted to play her if I ever had to play a lead role in a movie. So, when I saw there was a movie about the author and how the Mary… Continue reading Saving Mr Banks directed by John Lee Hancock – a review by Melissa

A Truth Universally Acknowledged: 33 Writers on Why We Read Jane Austen, edited by Susannah Carson This was slow reading for me. Not because I… Continue reading Melissa’s Reading Round Up

The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult – a review by Melissa

I would follow Picoult anywhere, not literally, of course, but imaginatively. We have been to a school shooting, death row, a wolf pack in the wild, Nazi Germany - and she never lets me down. I wouldn’t ordinarily read about these things, but I know that in Picoult’s hands the subject matter will be dealt… Continue reading The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult – a review by Melissa
